You obviously can’t carry a real sword with your costume for security, but sometimes the decorative, plastic options or foam replicas don’t cut it.

He chose a particular shape too, as you can see in the above photo. Once the sword was assembled from the transitions and a metal sliding door track, he filled in gaps with a little epoxy putty and wrapped the whole thing in aluminum foil tape to make it shiny.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
